Justin Patrick Hutchens, Sgt USAF
Jun 1, 1989 – Jan 12, 2017
Justin “Hutch” Hutchens died suddenly and unexpectedly after only twenty-seven years on this earth. Hutch touched hundreds of lives with his love, loyalty, dependability and humor as an integral member of his huge extended family. From his early years with his father, as a member of his Boys Town family, to his Air Force family world-wide, Justin was a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin, and a best friend. Justin graduated from Grand Island Central Catholic High School in 2008, then immediately entered the Air Force. He served eight years and was a Sergeant at the time of his honorable discharge in November of 2016. Justin looked forward to spending his civilian life enjoying his loves of family, fishing, football, fetch with his retriever Tess, and fixing his Camaro. His death leaves a huge void for all of us in his family by blood and by love.
Justin is survived by his father, Mark Patrick Hutchens; sister, Christina Redding; aunts and uncles; cousins, and extended family members too numerous to name.
Sergeant Justin Patrick Hutchens will be laid to rest with full military honors in Omaha National Cemetery. The family will receive friends Thurs., Jan. 19th, 6pm to 8pm at the Bel Air Chapel. Per his request, in lieu of flowers, a fund will be set up at Wells Fargo for the love of his life, Tess. Donations will be accepted for her care and welfare in his stead.
